All part of a conspiracy to drum up interest in the film.

Infuriating how little outrage there is over DeSean’s vile memes he posted and Stephen Jackson’s outrageous defense of them :evil:

The silence on DJax is deafening.  Especially compared to what happened on Drew Brees.  Double standard for sure. 

Lurie has a history of forgiving players.  He gave Vick a second chance.  He also did not cut Riley Cooper when he was caught using the N word on tape. But he should have. I would just cut DJax and move on. 

The Stephen Jackson comments were worse than the original.  "I don't know much about Hitler.  But heard he was a cruel dude." Or something to that effect. I guess we know 99 percent of these guys paid no attention in school.

Riley Cooper is why they can't cut DJax- the blow back from letting a white player get away with something you then cut a black player for would not go over well

That was seven years ago though. I believe Cooper was not cut because Vick stood up for him and said give him another chance. Apparently they are working with Jackson to get some education from the Jewish community. Who knew when Chip Kelly cut Jackson for gang ties he was in the Black Israelites.

It’s the same ownership and people are pretty hyper aware of racial double standards right now

So you're saying that if he were white that you would cut him?

if they hadn't botched Cooper, he'd be gone. If he was white and quoting Hitler he'd be gone.

The owner and GM are both Jews.  So I will defer to them.  I would cut him.

I think he’s saying that when a white owner and GM keep the white guy after saying awful things and then fire the black guy for saying awful things, it’s a bad look.  That being said, we’ve progressed as a society in 7 years, so I think they could probably get away with it.
I think they should cut Jackson, he’s not worth the hassle. But the original sin was keeping Cooper, another example of someone who probably wasn’t good enough to be worth the hassle.

I don't think they should cut Jackson...but not because he's black or anything to do with Cooper...but because there aren't a lot of Ph.D.'s in professional sports. 

People are gonna screw up...it's what they do going forward that matters...

I'm saying if they cut him they will have treated a white player one way and a black player another way for the same transgression.

Holocaust survivor, Julian Edelman invite DeSean Jackson to learn about anti-Semitism

Quote
“We need to have those uncomfortable conversations if we’re going to have real change,” Edelman said. “So to that end, DeSean, let’s do a deal: How about we go to D.C. and I take you to the Holocaust Museum and then you take me to the Museum of African American History and Culture. Afterwards, we’ll grab some burgers and we have those uncomfortable conversations.”

NFL teams pretty much never hold players to any standards of behavior anyway. See Tyreek Hill and Frank Clark playing for the Super Bowl champs, Cleveland signing Kareem Hunt with video evidence of him stomping on a woman, Greg Hardy getting employment after photo evidence of him assaulting a woman, etc.

This is the right way to handle this...good on Julian...
Agreed. Jackson 100% deserves to lose his job for this, but him keeping it and this mess he made getting turned into a useful “teachable moment” as they say is probably a more positive outcome overall. And as far as Stephen Jackson goes, he is an idiot. This is the same guy who made an Instagram video bashing all black women and telling young men to never get involved with them because they will ruin their lives while he himself has multiple black daughters. He’s a prick and a moron and always has been dating back to his playing career. Never liked him then either.
